The $493,000, as part of the base program, helps ensure adequate science capability to control and manage major forest pests, including the gypsy moth, sudden oak death, oak-wilt disease, hemlock woolly adelgid, and the emerald ash borer. The scope of the work is East-wide. Leading-edge science in insect and disease control is critical to ensuring the proper management, protection, and wise use of America's forests.
